Cemetery Census

This list of names is the result of my walking the cemeteries of Columbia county, OR, and writing down the information found on the tombstone markers. There are over 16,500 names in the list. (Yes, it took a while to collect the information.) The information you see here has been compiled in a book and is copyrighted so I would appreciate it if you would limit your extracts to a few names.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

How do you get ages of 999 years? Answer: That is the result of having to make an entry in the database. Since I didn’t have enough information to compute the age I picked a ridiculous number.

Can you tell me the name of the cemetery where the tombstone is located? Answer: Yes. To get all the information on one line I had to code the name of the cemetery. The following list explains the code.
